2. In a large bowl, beat brown sugar, pumpkin, butter, egg, and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed just until batter is smooth, scraping down side of bowl frequently with a rubber spatula. Fold in nuts and raisins. Turn batter into prepared pan, leveling surface.
